Illinois Officer on Administrative Leave After Taser Demonstration

KANKAKEE, Ill. (AP) - Police in Illinois say an officer assigned
to a junior high school has been placed on administrative leave
after he allegedly shocked three boys during an unauthorized Taser demonstration.

Authorities say the incident occurred Tuesday at a junior high
in Kankakee, which is about 60 miles south of Chicago.

According to a police statement, the officer used the Taser on
three male students who volunteered to be part of the classroom
demonstration.

Police say the officer was not authorized by the school, the
district or the police department to do a Taser demonstration.

A parent later took one student to a hospital, where he was
examined and released.
